Cheap-o Yum-o Recipe

Happy Birthday to Me! Happy Birthday to Me!

Sorry, had to be a little self-indulgent...

A month or so ago we tried a new take on our beloved black beans. It has that wonderful combination of going together quickly, making gobs, tasting great, and being pocket book friendly.

Beans and Rice
4 Cups Rice, cooked (that's 2 cups pre-cooked)
1 lb. Dry Black Beans, cooked
1 16 oz. Can Corn, drained
1 C Salsa
2 C Cheese, shredded

Combine first four ingredients in a 13 x 9 dish. Microwave 5-8 minutes until hot. Top with cheese. Bake at 350 until cheese melts.

We've has this with tortilla chips, tortillas, or just plain. It's also yummy with a bit of sour cream.
